Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

I'm currently at PDX waiting to board my plane to Dallas. There is nothing like Jamba Juice and Zombies in the morning. It's a direct flight, so it shouldn't be too bad, but I made sure to bring a netflix disc, and a book, just to be safe.


I packed my bag in a hurry, fingers crossed I remembered to bring everything, and that my bag makes it there in one piece *knock on wood*.

I promised you guys a craft related update (finally, I know), Kirsten and I have been doing some embroidery at work, and I'm enjoying it more than ever. These babies, and more will be in my Etsy shop once I get back from my weekend journey. Can you guess what they are?
I also scrapbooked, I swear it's been so long, mostly because I've been slacking on taking pictures, which I do every winter. 





I also have a pretty spring inspired picture to share, and some of my favorite scrapbook embellishments :)






Am I the only one who has craft supplies I love so much, I can't get myself to use them. ever.?

This pretty lady is picking me up in Dallas, we're sharing a room, and we're both competing in the pageant. So fun! I haven't seen Sarah since I left KC, so it will be good to have a long weekend to chat and be girls!


I packed 6 pairs of shoes, not including the ones I am wearing right now, haha. I am known for bringing too much stuff, and clothes that I'll never wear. But better safe than sorry, well at least till you find out your bag is too heavy. Oops.
I'll be updating my blog from the convention/pageant, so please check back. I have my camera packed, although I'm not sure how strict they are on photos. However each contestant is getting a disc with all the photos they took from the pageant on Sunday, so I will post those for sure!
I know some of you ladies commented a few weeks ago and said you'll be there, email or comment again, I'd love to meet you and hangout! <3

Thanks again to everyone who donated money, and for all your sweet comments, I am forever thankful! <3
I have a flight to catch, a movie to watch and a book to read! Wish me luck.

Have a great weekend! xoxo.

I think the embroideries are attached to tørkehåndkler eller forklær. Hm.

lavienouveau said...

I'm just getting back into and its such an inspiration!

Mainland Streel said...

I know exactly what you mean about not being able to use your cute craft supplies! I have so many pretty balls of yarn just begging to be used, but I don't want to waste them on anything less than spectacular. :)

Your blog is so pretty and cute...it's impossible not to smile here. :)
